Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!
The column won't immediately lock into position when the key is turned like some do. For the column to lock it may need to be turned ninety degrees in either direction depending on where it's at when the key is turned off.
If it truly isn't locking then the problem is in the column and it would need to be replaced but I'm doubting there is an issue. Try removing the key and turn the steering wheel, I believe you'll find it will lock when it's turned.
